I loved these biscuits! I halved the recipe and used 1 egg white. Very light and fluffy.

low carb biscuitsJanuary 02, 2013 By None
These are wonderful, I do not eat grains and these are a wonderful substitute for bread. I made them exactly like the recipe using coconut oil. I would like the fat grams and fat calories per biscuit? Would that be possible.

Coconut Oil is Trans Fat Free!!October 29, 2012 By None
Coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats you can consume, if not THE healthiest. Please don't buy into the dated belief that tropical oils are unhealthy.

Low Carb BiscuitsMay 03, 2012 By biznme
I was searching for low carb biscuits and came upon this recipe. I used a regular egg white (thanks to whomever suggested that!) and almond flour. I'm not a baker, so I was a bit nervous, but I really wanted bread with my dinner. I have to say they came out fantastic! They are great as regular biscuits and I think will lend well to dessert biscuits. I will definitely be making these again!

Low carb biscuitsFebruary 27, 2012 By None
I just started the Atkins diet and of course I want bread! Made these and they are wonderful! Also for those of you who can't find the powdered egg whites, I used the egg white from one egg and it worked fine. I think I will add some spices next time to give a diffferent flavor. Enjoy!

Coconut OilSeptember 22, 2011 By None
COLD-pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil *IS* good for you and is not a trans fat. Any of the hydrogenated oils are bad for you. I am going to try these biscuits SOON. Thanks for posting !!!

decent for grain-freeJuly 27, 2010 By None
Perhaps it's different if you use the powdered egg white--I used four real egg whites in place of the powdered and the ""other milky liquid"". What I got was decent, but not super-fluffy or anything. Also too small to really butter or add jam or any other biscuit-y things. Having given up grains though, I shall probably make these again, but I suspect I'm the only one in the house who will eat them.

prefer to use butterJune 22, 2010 By None
I did not use the coconut oil nor the palm oil as these are transfat and are really unhealthy, they increase bad cholesterol, and clog up your arthery and I believe have been linked to an increase risk of cancer. I strongly recommed not using coconut oil or the palm oil, but using butter instead.

Family enjoyed them!March 06, 2010 By None
I have made these once. My family devoured them. I would make them again, but I am having trouble finding powdered egg whites. I'm thinking of changing the recipe to use fresh egg whites, but it's a bit tricky with the liquid modification. When I baked them I used all ingredients listed and the biscuits were very good.

Okay but....February 16, 2009 By Cowgirl_Power82
I really thought these would be a little more biscuit like from the description. I did like them but they are more of a puffy cookie than a biscuit. I did use shortening instead of coconut oil though. Could that have been my downfall? They are good and I am either going to use them for biscuits and gravy or a strawbwerry shortcake type thing.

use half soy flourNovember 24, 2008 By sjhowell
I made this recipe with half almond meal and half soy flour. It wasn't necessarily similar to a traditional biscuit, but it was pretty darn good in it's own right. Had a consistency kind of like cornbread, but tasted more like a roll. Delicious on the pot pie recipe.

Low Carb BuiscuitsJanuary 21, 2008 By morris826
These came out very dry and did not resemble traditional buiscuits. I suspect that a soy flour based recipe would be a closer match.
